5:01 am
it is time to say good morning to tony who is in with our forecast for today and we are off to a cold start this morning after what turned out to be a pretty decent day yesterday afternoon. >> not a bad day. today won't be bad either. we've got temperatures in the 0s and some spots in the 30s. in the 20s and some spots in the 30s. here is a look at the satellite- radar. it again remains calm. -- we've got temperatures in the 20s and some spots in the 30s. partial cloud cover for your morning hours. your forecast looks like this. after some morning clouds, we'll see some late morning and afternoon sunshine. temperatures today more mild.
5:02 am
add about 10-degree to what you had yesterday and that is what you will get today. washington, 57. la plata, 58. 56 in frederick for your high. we want to check the roads with julie wright. i believe we'll go to the breaking news right now, that tractor-trailer which burst into flames during that three- vehicle crash on the inner loop of the beltway. >> this is right near darcy road, the overpass there, about 11:00 last night. several lanes still closed this morning. sarah simmons live at the scene. we saw just one lane creeping by at this point. what is the latest? >> reporter: what we know so far from maryland state highway is that it appears as though they believe the overpass is safe. they have not reopened the
5:03 am
overpass itself, darcy road, to traffic. but they hope to get more lanes of track here opened up on the inner loop. take a look at the video. this is pretty impressive from last night about 11:00 when prince george's county fire department says that tractor- trailer hit the bridge embankment at the darcy road overpass. there was some underside damage to the overpass. that is what they have been looking into to see if the bridge is still safe. apparently, they have determined that it is but they are still going to have to clear the area through here. three vehicles were involved altogether. paramedics did take one person to the hospital that was injured. at this point, the driver of the tractor-trailer, we were told from firefighters last night was presumed to be inside the tractor-trailer cab. the tractor-trailer itself is still here on the scene. they say that he was unaccounted for. at this point, maryland state police still are not confirming that the driver passed away in this accident. we do not know for sure, have
5:04 am
confirmation yet at this point from maryland state police on that. but again, this is going to be a headache for folks this morning on the driving side of things. one lane of traffic that is getting by. but the scene here is still pretty active as they try to clean up and figure out exactly what happened here last night. back to you guys in the studio. >> we want to go to julie to take a look at what is happening out there and maybe help some people around that mess. >> thank you. good morning to you all. let's get back to the live shot. on the inner loop as you travel southbound 95/495, that is where we have only one lane of travel getting through at this hour. so again, rush hour hasn't really kicked into full effect obviously. the light traffic volume is definitely working in your favor but people are definitely moving well below speed single file to the left on this inner loop as you travel south of 214 central avenue but before you reach route 4 and all of this activity there at the darcy
5:05 am
road overpass. let me help put it in perspective for you. if you are traveling the inner loop coming from the north to the south, it is only one left lane that is getting by here at the darcy road overpass. you guys coming out of greenbelt, coming out of land am or college park, you may want to cut through town and use d.c. route 295 and a combination of the bw parkway as your alternate routes. i think that will save you some time especially as volume continues to build through the rush hour. again, authorities are hoping to have at least two left lanes open by 6:00 a.m. that is only two lanes open. there will be a rubbernecking delay on the outer loop so anticipate that the east side of town will be backed up for quite some time so d.c. route 295 kenilworth avenue a good option for you. in montgomery county, southbound 270 looks great. no problems to report out of germantown headed south out towards mva. northbound i-95 in both the express and the main lines headed northbound towards the occoquan. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic.

5:48 am
where the accident activity occurred. you will find the two left lanes squeezing by. as the rush hour continues to build and grow in volume, likely to find delays on both sides of the beltway. again, those delays on the inner loop stacking up from before ritchie marlboro road trying to squeeze by this accident scene. that is why we are suggesting the combination of the parkway and d.c. 295 kenilworth avenue. lanes are open if you are continuing to work your way along northbound i-95 out of dale city. no incidents to report here along 66. the minor fender bender already pulled over to the shoulder. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. dozens of united airlines flights were either canceled or delayed after the airline grounded 96 planes on tuesday. they were all 757s. united said it took the ask to make sure maintenance checks

5:51 am
before. the bottom line is he is a great coach. he talk about how he changed his offensive system towards the end of last year. >> the only thing i would guard against and i'm a huge mason fan. we all love the coach. we have to keep our expectations muted even though coach l has these guys going. we can't expect them just to go on another final four run. if they win a game or two in the tournament, that is still an outstanding season. >> i hard him say a completely different team. with mason, you never count them out. >> it is a different team. coach l has already said that the junkies can give the pep talk before the ncaa tournament. we'll bring the boys in studio. >> we should have fox 5 in. >> is that a reward for them to
